Wire EDM- Upper/Lower Guide Offset Values

In the cutting parameters there is a section for Upper and Lower Guide Offset.  When cutting 4 axis, do these values need to be set or are they simply used for simulation purposes?  Does the software use these to determine head position?  I use the Upper and Lower Plane settings but never do anything with the guide offsets.

Re: Wire EDM- Upper/Lower Guide Offset Values

The Upper/Lower Guide offsets are only used for simulation and collision check. They determine the distance of the guides in relation to the Upper/Lower planes.  

You can see it when doing tool path verify and guides (holders) are defined in the tool.
